Yesterday was anything but n g-ood rnclng
day , us the wind blew llttlo less tlmn a gale ,
and the temperature was much lower than is
conducive to fast time. Notwithstanding
heso facts , a good sized crowd assembled at
Jnlon park to witness the speed contest that
md been arranged for the afternoon. Sov-
crnl changes were announced in the pro
gramme , the 2I3 : ! trot being declared off
mill next Saturday , on account of the $ . " > 00
flvo-imlo match race , which was expressly to
nlto place between Omaha horses.
The Judges were Theodore Uray , Colonel
W. F. Sapp and Colonel U. 11. Dalley.
riiomaa Hswniun and J. T. Stewart acted as
The first race of the afternoon was a half
mile running duth for a inirso of00. . There
were live entries , but only three .starters.
They drew positions as follows : Donovan ,
. 'mine Queen and Uoo Frnim. These posl-
Ions were held to the finish. The race was
very Interesting , the horses running well to-
getner throughout. Donovan was not urged ,
and won by a neck in 51 seconds.
Next catno the roadster race , open to all
lorses without a record , owners to drive.
There wcro llvo entries and all started.
They drew the following positions : Tom ,
entered by E. A. Wlcldiarn , llrst ; Billy W. ,
entered by Lucius Wells , second ; Copt.
Ashby , entered by Win. llntts , third ; .lltn
Pnxton , entered by J. L. Pnxton. fourth ;
Golddust , entered by Dr. F. S. Seyhcrt ,
fifth. The llrst heat wns n very fair exhibi
tion of trotting , pacing and running. Ashby
took first honors on the trotting , Hilly on
the pacing and 1'om on the running. Gold-
lust proved to bo first-rate trailer and hold
.lint position to the llntsh. The race was be
tween Hilly and Asliby. The former waa
very speedy and in good condition , and had
things his own way. Ho won easily in 2:53 : ,
Ashby second , Pnxton third. Tom fourth.
There were but four starters in the second
heat , GoldUust being drawn. It wns a line
race between 11 Illy , Ashby and Paxton. The
J'ho latter showed up well at the half and
forged to the lead when Kid left his feet.
The load v/us hold but a short time , how
ever , and the hunt and race was won by
Llilly , in n:0'J : , Ashby second , Paxton third and
Tom fourth. Mr. Wells and iMr. Butts wore
each presented with a line whip by Manager
Lsie.v , of the Driving Park association.
When the llvo-mllo race wus called , it w\s (
found that that only one of the horses was
on the grounds , Ben having failed to put in
nn appearance. Wild Irishman , driven by
Scott McCoy , wns accordingly started alone.
Ho paced the llvo miles in 18iSJ : ! , uud was
Riven the race.
It was found that the programme wns lit
tle short , and It was decided to call the 3:35 :
class. There were but throe starters , Mon-
tacollo , entered byMattHarlo : Mary F. , en
tered by Wade Carev : and Hilly Mont , en
tered by Charles Wilson. They drew
positions In the order named. Mary F took
the heat m'JiCSJi' , Montacello second , Hilly
Mont third. The crowd began to leave alter
this heat , ns the .wind was altogether too
cold for comfort. The second he.it wns a
rendition of the llrst. and the positions the
same at the llnish. Time 3:47 : } .
Next Saturday there will bo another rac
ing programme givou , and among the num
bers will be a free-for-all roadster race , for
norscs of Council Bluffs and Omaha , owners
to drive. The llrst pri/.o will be a SIX ) sot of
harness , and the second u line lap robe. The
attendance at these meetings continue to in
crease and it is probable that they will be
come quite a feature among horsemen of the
two cities the coming season.

The committees having the coming fire

buildln g last evening. The matter of rail

they will not come here. It waa the prevail
ing sentiment that the people of the city

their part of the work. Heretofore , a few
men have boon engaged In the matter , but
there has been no general expression. It is
for the people to decide whether the tourna
ment shall bo had or not , and if they do not
so dcslro and take hold of the
matter in earnest there will bo noth

A Crnzy Apparition.
Jailer Galvln was sitting quietly reading
THE Bnn In the marshal's ofllco when a
slight noise caused him to look up. Ha was
startled to see standing before him a swarthy
individual , hatless , coatless and bwt'.eis. A
shirt , originally white , was displayed in full
outside ttic pantaloons.
"Whence came you and what do you
want ? "
"Nowhere , and don't want nothing. "
As soon as the jailer could recover from
his surprise ho showed the visitor
to a back coll. The fellow w.is
evidently crazy. Investigation led to the
revelation that his niunu was Fletcher , and
that he was unfortunate In having him run
over by a dummy train , mid thereby lost a portion
tion of his brains. Silica then ho has bzon
at times so crazy that he smashed furniture
and made his wretched home still moro so.
Ho has about $400 in the bank , so ho is not
suffering for lack of funds. Nevertheless
ho has been sent to the county jail for twenty
days as a "vagrant , " that being deemed the
easiest way to dispose of him.
The Catholic bazaar closed last evening.
It was ono of tbo most successful evenings
in the way of patronage and pleasure had
during the week. The closing hours were
spent in drawing the articles donated bv the
charitable people of the city. St. Bernard's '
hospital is the gainer by fully $1,200 by this
Tlio Important Part. They Play in the
Government , of the Kmpire.
From George Itanium's article in the
April Century is taken the following :
"Thoro is probably no country in the
world where the public power occupies
a wider Held , plays a more important
part , or touches the private personal
lifo of the citi/.on at more points than it
does in Kussia. In a country like Eng
land or the United States , where the
uooplo are the governing power , the
functions of the people are simple and
clearly dollnod , and uro limited , for
the most part , to the prevention or the
detection of crime and the maintenance
of order in public places. In Hussla ,
however , where the people are not the
governing power but hold to that power
the relation of an infant ward to a guar
dian , the police occupy a very dilToront
and much moro important position.
"Tho theory upon which the govern
ment of Russia proceeds is Unit the citi
zen is not only incapable of taking part
in the management of the affairs of the
country , his province , or his district ,
but is incompetent to manage oven the
affairs of his own household ; and that ,
from the time when lie leaves his cradle
and begins the struggle of lifo down to
the time when his weary gray head is
finally laid under the sod , ho must bo
guided , directed , instructed , restrained ,
repressed , regulated , fenced in , fenced
out , braced up , kept up , and made to do
generally what somebody else thinks IB
host for aim. The natural outcome of
this paternal theory of crovornment is
the concentration of all administrative
authority in the hands of a few high of
ficials and an enormous extension of
power. Matters that in other countries
are loft to the discretion of the indi
vidual citizen , or to the judgment of u
email group of cltix.ons , are regulated in
Russia by the minister of the interior
through the imporal police. If you are
a Russian , and wish to establish a news
paper , you must ask the permission of
the minister of the interior. If you
wish to open a Sunday-school , or any
other sort of school , whether in u nog-
loctad slum of St. Petersburg or in a
native village in Kamchatka , yon must
ubk the minister of public instruction.

sult Lyoll-s 'Principles of Geology , ' or
Sponsor's 'Social Slntlo's , ' you will find
that you cannot oven look at sunh dan-
porous and incendiary volumes without
special permission. If you 'tiro a phys
ician you must got permission before you
can practice , and then if you do not
wish to respond to calls in the night
you must have permission to refuse to
go ; furthermore if you wish to prescribe
what are known in Kussla us 'powerfully
noting' medicines , you must have special
permission , or the drutrgist will not
dare to Jill your porscriptions. If yon
are n peasant and wish to build a bath

permission. If you wish to thrash out
your grain in the evening by candle

the police. If you wish to go more than

must got pormision. If you are a for
eign traveler you must get permission
to come into the empire , permission to
go out if it , permission to stay in It
longer than six months , and you must

As the story goes Sladc insulted the
Fronohnnni and the latter "laid for
liim" with a shotyuu and improved an
opportunity to add about a pound of
buckshot to Sladu's advoirdupoisc.
When the latter recovered he at once
called on the Frenchman , and after
shooting him full of holes .and cutting
oT ! his ears killed the fqruignor. No
attempt was made to punish Slado for
a Win. High , the deceased ox-sherill'
C'arbon ' county , was present at the Slado
lynching at Virginia City , Montana.
Ho told an interesting story of the allair.
Slado and his gang were in the habit of
raiding the town in the regulation Colo-
rddo cowboy style and kept killing
people and damaging property until the
citizens declared themselves. They
captured the desperado on his next visit
and proceeded to business. Slado was
defiant until ho became convinced that
the men were in earnest. Then ho
weakened and was strung up with
prayers for morcy.on his lips.

( sadly ) This funny business is very
trying. The steve pipe is played out ;

the business end of the wasp has gone
into bankruptcy , and the lightning-rod
